I played saxophone in a high school marching band. I quit playing after high school. As I got older I wanted to find a simple stringed instrument to play as a hobby. The dulcimer fit the bill. I like to play chording dulcimer and I don't use a noter, so not a traditional style player I also like to build cigar box dulcimers and cigar box guitars.
I First Saw/Heard A Mountain Dulcimer::
I actually bought a cheap First Act Dulcimer on clearance at Walmart. I had never heard one before. I figured that I could learn simple songs on it.
